There’s no mistaking what happened to this MacBook Pro screen–the 17″ widescreen display suffered a direct hit to the center of the laptop. As you might guess from the crack marks and crazy lines covering the desktop, the LCD panel is damaged. When there is damage to a computer screen like this, you might see what looks like ink leaking across the screen, rainbow lines spreading outward from the point of impact, or white or gray boxes appearing on your screen. In this case, the damage has affected most of the screen, with only a small strip near the left edge still useable.
